On May 25, 2014 at approximately 10:15p.m. the Eastern Pike Regional Police Department was dispatched to an armed robbery occurring on Pennsylvania Avenue between 2nd and 4th street  in Matamoras Borough.  The victim described the suspect as a male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and grey shorts with a black handgun.

The victim had stopped for a pedestrian in a crosswalk when the suspect opened the passenger door and pointed a gun at the victim demanding the victim to drive. The perpetrator had the victim drive him towards the river bank where he stole a credit card and  punched the victim in the face  before fleeing over the riverbank.

The Eastern Pike Regional Police Department is actively pursuing all leads and asks citizens with information to call Assistant Chief Stewart at 570-491-4040 or email your tip to tips@eprpd.org

DSCN0307The Eastern Pike Regional Police Department are Continuing efforts to improve pedestrian safety in Matamoras Borough by continuing crosswalk enforcement initiatives along Pennsylvania Avenue.

The crosswalk awareness initiatives involve an off-duty, undercover police officer posing as a pedestrian crossing at a crosswalk.  If oncoming drivers don’t stop for the pedestrian—as required by law—the vehicle will be pulled over by a marked patrol car further down the street.

Motorists can face fines of $50.00 for failure to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Crosswalk awareness initiatives are planned throughout the Borough with additional “yield to pedestrians in cross walk” signs being posted.  Locations chosen are close to homes and businesses where the cross walks are used frequently.

The crosswalk awareness initiative is funded through a grant from the Aggressive Driving Special Projects Program funded by the Pennsylvania Department of transportation.  Because the program uses off-duty police officers, it does not divert police resources from other crime-fighting efforts.

Dont let your Big Day Become Your Last Day

Dont let your Big Day Become Your Last Day

Alcohol and other impairing drugs are involved in approximately 40 percent of all traffic crashes in which someone is killed each year. If you drink alcohol or use other impairing drugs and drive, even a little, your chances of being in a collision are much greater than if you did not drink any alcohol or use any other drugs.

If you are younger than 21 it is illegal to purchase, publicly possess and drink alcoholic beverages. Alcohol and other impairing drugs affect a person’s ability to perceive surroundings, react to emergencies and skillfully operate a motor vehicle. For new drivers learning complex skills, the effects of alcohol and other impairing drugs are greater. Pennsylvania has a “zero tolerance” law (no alcohol in the circulatory system) for drivers under 21.

Eastern Pike Regional Officers will be out in force.  If you are under 21 and under the influence of alcohol you will be arrested.
